Prepare Your Microsoft Word File for Conversion to DITA

Heretto CCMS enables you to convert your DOCX files to DITA. For the best conversion results, we recommend using the standard Microsoft® Word heading styles. Follow these guidelines to edit the heading styles in bulk in Microsoft® Word before converting your content from DOCX to DITA in Heretto.
  1. In Microsoft® Word, open the DOCX file.
  2. Place your cursor in a custom heading that you want to change to a default heading.
  3. In the Home tab, in the Styles group, right-click the highlighted style and click Select all highlighted_style instances.
    Every instance of that custom heading style in the document is now selected.
  4. In the Home tab, in the Styles group, select a default Microsoft® Word style.
    For example, select Heading 1.
    By choosing a new style, every selected instance of the custom heading style now has the default style that you have chosen.
  5. For every custom heading, repeat 2 through 4.
  6. Save the DOCX file.
